Hong Kong junior James Endicott will be competing in two gruelling events within the space of a week later this month - but the 18-year-old will be ready for the challenge. Endicott has entered both the World Duathlon Championships in St Wendel, Germany, on August 23 and the World Triathlon Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland, on August 30. Endicott won the Open Division of the Kai Tak Airport Duathlon two weeks ago and is confident of doing well at the St Wendel event as the race suits his running and riding abilities. The duathlon is a test of supreme fitness involving a five-kilometre run, 40-km bike ride and a 10-km run. Endicott will join fellow junior triathlete Derek Wong Ping-hong and male veteran Adrian Halkes in the St Wendel event. He will then form part of a 12-strong Hong Kong team for the World Triathlon Championships, which is the toughest race on the International Triathlon Union calendar.
